    Does anyone have any suggestions for the best joystick to play Wing Commander with on a mac computer? I don't want to waste my money.

    I guess it depends what kind of Mac and which Wing Commanders you want to play.

    If you have an older system and are trying to play the Macintosh ports of Super Wing Commander, Wing Commander 3 and Wing Commander 4 then you will want a vintage ADB-version of the Thrustmaster. You can get just the stick (Thrustmaster FCS) or the whole setup (FCS + RCS rudder and WCS throttle) for the Mac.

    If you have a modern computer and are playing the DOS games in DOSBox then... any USB 'stick should work, I think.

    If you are interested I have an ADB Thrustmaster FCS and WCS that I have no computer for...

    The joystick I use on my Mac to play the DOS version of WC I, WC II and Armada is a Saitek ST50

    Anybody know if there's any way to get the Attack 3 joystick to work with WC 3 OR 4 for the Mac?
